Film & Arts Greenlights Original Documentary Breaking Music


AMC Networks International—Latin America’s arts and entertainment brand Film & Arts has confirmed the commissioning of its new original documentary Breaking Music in Buenos Aires and Berlin.

The new documentary, which is set to premiere later this year, will explore connections between two different music genres—tango and classical—and will showcase world-renowned artists. In Breaking Music, Film & Arts will follow German baritone Benjamin Appl on the streets of Buenos Aires and Berlin. Throughout this trip, Appl will look for the similarities and differences between the genre he masters and the artistry of tango.

Along the way, difficulties and surprises will arise making him rethink what he previously knew about this style and why Buenos Aires is still tango’s musical factory. In Berlin, accompanied by renowned pianist Jose Gallardo, he’ll perform for an audience of music aficionados, narrating his adventures and premiering an original song composed for this occasion.

Breaking Music is an AMC Networks International—Latin America original production for Film & Arts, with Trinity Contenidos serving as associate producer and holding exclusive rights for international distribution. Frame Zero Argentina is the production company commissioned for the production.

Ricardo Deben, executive VP and managing director at AMC Networks International—Latin America, said: “This exciting new original production highlights our commitment to showcasing breakthrough artistry on Film & Arts through a wide range of subjects. We’re hoping to expand this documentary format to explore other music genres in the future. Breaking Music complements our slate of high-quality programming across our portfolio of brands throughout Latin America.”
